A moving poetic tale, L’œil du soldat presents the hallucinated universe of a young man and the pact he makes with the Devil. This pact allows him, by a simple play of eyelids, to change sex, color and time. Thus becoming a soldier in the blink of an eye, he can suddenly no longer hide the horror of war. As it rains down from the dead, an adolescent thought rages. What’s behind it? How many more times must the throats be slit? What does it take to stop being to soothe the red? With an implacable rhythm, Larry Tremblay plays with raw, vivid expressiveness to revoke the foundations of violence. He invites us to decontaminate the words, to open our eyes—left or right.
